Papá Noel está atascado - Father Christmas is stuck
We have been working all term with the house, clothes, weather and Christmas vocabulary so children and parents built up their vocabulary to get ready to this story. Children loved it!
This is the recorded version so you can keep enjoying the story at home…
Please send us a comment if you’d like the PDF file with the story and pictures.
Villancicos are Christmas carols in Spanish, these are the ones we have been working on in 2013.

Made by children in term 3 - this is the 7th class of their first ever term learning Spanish!!
Thanks Lily, Finn, Eve, Fergus, Annika and Daniel for your fabulous performance. Me encanta! – I love it!
This is one of the most popular songs we learn, and the catchiest!! My great students from Ladbrooks School in Tai Tapu are introducing themselves, singing and performing this song from Music with Sara. Mi cuerpo hace musica – my body makes music… like our song!
By the way, this is even more special as it is the 7th class of their first ever term learning Spanish!!
Numbers and colours is the first topic we have worked with in term 4 in our Children + Parents classes. We really liked to sing Diez indiecitos – 10 little indians and also listen to this Rockalingua song!
Editorial Difusion has produced excellent videos students can watched after they finish working with the book units in class – Aula Internacional 1. Videos are a good tool to improve your listening, speaking and of course, your pronunciation when you are at home. Most of our students study Spanish because they want to travel to a Spanish speaking country: most for leisure but also to work and speaking is their ultimate goal. Read 10 ways to improve your Spanish speaking for more suggestions.
Unit 1 – Nosotros
Unidad 2 – Quiero aprender espanol
Unidad 3 – Donde esta Santiago?
If you are on one of the Beginners 1, 2 or 3 courses and want to practise more at home, this is the book you must have!
We especially like the CD that comes with it which will help you with pronunciation, listening and speaking – areas that most students would agree are very tricky to practice at home. The 18 topics are divided into:
- Sonidos, letras y ortografía – Sounds & spelling
- Los numerales – Numerals
- Los sustantivos – Nouns
- Los adjetivos – Adjectives
- Los artículos – Articles
- Los demostrativos – Demonstratives – You can download a sample unit from Editorial Difusión here.
- Los posesivos – Possessives
- Los cuantificadores – Quantifiers
- La interrogación – Questions
- Los pronombres personales – Personal pronouns
- Las preposiciones – Prepositions
- El presente del indicativo – The Present Tense
- El infinitivo – The Infinitive
- El pretérito perfecto – The Preterite Perfect
- El pretérito indefinido – The Indefinite
- Las construcciones impersonales – The Impersonal
- Ser, estar, hay – Verb to Be
- Los conectores – Conectors
The book can be used as self study. Students can find the answers and transcriptions of the dialogues in the CD at the back of the book. The book can also be used as a follow up of our classes. Please let the teacher know you have the book so she can guide you on how to use it and what topics would benefit you more. Otherwise, the student can look for the topic he is interested in and work on it independently. The student doesn’t have to follow the order the topics are presented in the book.
In the Mundo Plurilingüe exercises the student has the chance to make a comparison between Spanish and English or any other languages he speaks.
You can buy the book in the The Book Depository.
